Haute off the Press | Charleston Stitch Letterpress Invitation in Keylime Green

charleston stitch letterpress wedding invitation in keylime green and grayCharleston Stitch is an invitation design near and dear to my heart. I designed at the request of Martha Stewart Weddings magazine (my all time favorite magazine … I’ve been a fan since the very first issue), with my once and again hometown of Charleston as the inspiration. This example is shown letterpressed in gorgeous keylime and champagne inks on thick off-white 100 percent cotton paper.

Haute off the Press: Citron, Champagne and Kraft Floral Julian Wedding Invitation

floral julian wedding invitation in citron and champagne ink with kraft envelopeOoooh, these are two of my very favorite color combos! Wedding invitations printed in citron ink paired with champagne … and rustic chic kraft envelopes printed with metallic champagne ink. J’adore, as Mémé Delphine would say. The design, Julian, was named after pretty California wildflowers spotted in the Julian mountain area, and I think it’s a great choice for a garden wedding.

congrats patricia & gill

Congrats to sweet Patricia and husband Gill; they were married this past weekend in a darling chateaux just outside Brussels. I am sooooo excited and happy for you two. Cannot wait to hear all about it (truly I am so sorry to have missed this epic day).

I’ve known Patricia since she was a little girl, so it was no surprise to me when she told me her wedding colors are aubergine and champagne. I seem to remember a lot of sparkly purple nail polish when she was a tot ; )

We letterpressed all of Patricia and Gill’s stationery in aubergine and champagne inks; the design was custom, but look out for a similar design to come to the Delphine line later this summer.

Congrats again, you two. Send photos when you can, and please tell me you have your dad’s speach recorded because I cannot wait to hear it!

trend: champagne saucers

I’m loving the new trend of champagne saucers (or coupes) instead of flutes.I know it’s better for the champagne to be in flutes (to keep the bubbles tight) … but I drink it so quickly a saucer is just fine with me.

Left to right: Marc Jacobs “Colette” for Waterford (Macys), Calvin Klein Home “Basso” (Macys), Marc Jacobs “David” for Waterford (Macys), Platinum Ombre Champagne Coupe by A Mise En Scene for Ruffian Design (Anthropologie).

UPDATE: The “welcome” champagne cocktails (they were yummy and PINK) at the Martha Stewart Weddings 15th Anniversary Party at The Plaza were served in sweet champagne saucers. So chic.

bubbly

If you’re planning on serving bubbly at your wedding, check out this cool website at Mumm Napa Valley. It will help you choose the vintage that will pair well with your meal. This one is my favorite.

dreaming of champagne in Paris

I’ve been dreaming of Paris lately, which inspired this little montage.

The dress (which I could never wear because I’d be afraid to sit down in it, but love) is by Alice & Olivia. The gold J. Crew heels remind me of a pair I love to borrow from my Mom (she’s had them for more than 30 years). The triple coil earrings are from GirlProps.com. The champagne is Perrier-Jouet. And the Roost Golden Berry champagne flutes (which I LOVE and want sooooo bad) are available at Dreamy.

things i heart, but first purchased because of the packaging

I’m not proud of it, but I admit that I *sometimes* purchase a new product solely because of the packaging. I bought a bottle of St. Germain soon after the product launched last year because I was intrigued by their print advertising and brilliant graphic design (check out their website to see what I mean). When I picked up the bottle in person I was sold … it’s heavy and gorgeous, and it reminds me of the Guerlain Shalimar perfume my grandmother Delphine wears. I do remember thinking, well, if the liquor is horrid I can use the bottle in my bathroom for bath salts.

The elderflower liquor is my new favorite. I like it best as a “flavor shot” in plain club soda in a tall glass with ice. It’s also excellent mixed with champagne, and is a great after dinner drink served straight up. Plus it looks pretty on the table.
